National Energy Technology Lab (NETL) – Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Research Opportunity
 
Apply by 9/30/17
 
Through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), this posting seeks a postdoctoral researcher to conduct applied research in support of NETL Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) research. Candidates who demonstrate knowledge of conventional techniques of electrochemical performance testing (e.g. cyclic voltammetry, V-I curve generation, Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy, Ionic Conductivity, and Electrical Conductivity Relaxation) are encouraged to apply.
 
The successful candidate will have experience in:
·        Basic ceramic processing such as powder synthesis, tape casting, screen printing, and sintering
·        Microstructure analysis with SEM, EDS, AFM, etc., and sample preparation for the analyses
·        Preferably have experience in wet chemistry methods, and basic understanding of the general principles of fuel cell operation 
 
The successful candidate is NOT required to possess specific experience in solid oxide fuel cells, but preference will be given to candidates with experience in solid oxide fuel cells, electro-ceramic materials, electrochemistry, or any related systems in sensors, membranes, and other energy conversion devices.
 
***Interested applicants should complete the online application athttp://www.orau.gov/netl/. In the online application list Dr. Gregory Hackett as your requested mentor.  This will associate your application with this job posting.   Please send a CV to gregory.hackett@netl.doe.gov.
